Soil Texture using a soil sieve AnalysisNameGroup numberDate2IntroductionSoil is classified for engineering purpose. It is important to know the distribution if grain size insoil masses. Soil is obtained from construction site of burrow pits. Sieve analysis test is a methodthat can be used to determine granular size distribution of a sample of soil. The standard grain sizeanalysis test determines the relative proportion of different grain size distributed among severalsize range. The grain size distribution is determined using this process if sieve analysis.Soil samples are allowed to pass through stacks of sieve of decreasing mesh opening size andmeasuring the weight of soil retained from each sieve. The main concept is to retain the largeparticles unable to pass through the different sizes of sieve openings.It I applied to soil ranging from 75mm to 75 microns. The sieve analysis can be classified as drysieving and wet sieving. Dry sieving is applied to soil with negligible amount of plastic fines whilewet sieving is applied to soil with considerable plastic fines.Soil type is shown by the granular size range in figure 1.Figure 1 soil type based on granular sizeObjectivesTo determine the grain size distribution curve of soil samples by passing the soil through a sieveof decreasing mesh opening and measuring the weight retained on each sieve.3Materials and Methods1.
